Hello Elpha!I'm Nora Poggi, journalist, director and producer of the award-winning documentary on women tech founders called "She Started It" with my co-founder @insiyahss. We filmed over 3 years in Silicon Valley, New York, Vietnam and Europe. The film follows 5 incredible young women, including Sheena Allen, Stacey Ferreira and Thuy Truong, throughout the ups and downs of their entrepreneurial journey. It also features amazing women such as Megan Smith, former CTO of the US, @christine of Intel Capital, @guo of Greylock Partners and Ruchi Sanghvi, co-founder of Cove that was acquired by Dropbox. Over the course of filming and touring, we have met with and talked to hundreds of entrepreneurs, VCs, and experts of the tech ecosystem. Since its festival release in 2016, the film has screened at over 400 venues in 35+ countries and in places such as the Grace Hopper Conference, Google, Apple, Microsoft, Twitter, Disney, Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, The World Bank, and many more. She Started It was featured in NYT's Women in The World, Fast Company, Glamour, Forbes, Inc Magazine, among others.Before and during that journey, I also worked as a tech reporter for French publication Usine Nouvelle covering Silicon Valley news and entrepreneurship.Ask me anything about pitching media and getting the attention of journalists, telling the story of your brand or company, what it's like to partner with big tech companies, overall tech and venture capital ecosystem, networking advice, or something else!
